I noticed it a few weeks ago.
what happen is the ps3 will shutdown by itself after a period of time (sometimes 30 minutes, sometimes an hour).
this happen regardless of the activity: playing DW6, listening to music cd, etc.
when it happens, everything was turned off, and there's no lights coming out from anywhere.
in order to turn it on again, I need to unplug the power cable, then plug it back in again.
but then it will happen again.
I'm thinking it has a bad power supply or sumthin.
is there a phone number I can call to have it fixed???
I really appreciate your help!
I have moved this thread to the appropriate area.
Also If you are having issues with your console please contact the local Playstation support centre.
I didn't pay attention to where it posted to.
(I thought it's still on the original section)
anyway, I'll update you once I hear from them.
I've had the same error about 3 weeks ago with the slim version I purchased on opening day. 1 year and 1 week after purchase.
I received a refurbished unit 3 days later.
The refurbished unit has the same error 2 weeks later. I have just sent it off today for replacement. Sony's customer service has been top notch but I would like to be assured it won't be happening again.
Tough call. Whilst we cannot definately guarantee a lifetime usage of the console, we can assure you that all components are brand new and quality tested before being shipped back to you.
Hope all goes well with this one.
I got my PS3 back last friday and so far it can play DW 6 for 2 hours without shutting down.
I'll be playing some games for a few hours each day this week to see if it can handle the stress, and hopefully it will lasts more than 2 weeks.
umm ... it happens again.
this is weird!
I played DW6 on it for about 1 and a half hour and there it was!
just when I got 1000 KOs with Guan Yu it goes dead!!!
no light, no nothing!!!!
why oh why???????
I'm gonna give them a call again this afternoon.
i am having the same problem with my ps3. 2 weeks out of warranty will sony solve the problem
mine used to do this until it finaly got YLOD. from what i have read it is the first signs it is coming
sorry, forgot to update this thread.
My issue has been resolved by ... buying me a new power cable.
so it has nothing to do (i think) with the console itself.
so try using a new power cable and see if that still happening.
if not, and since it's only 2 weeks, just give them a call anyway.
the YLoD is definitely something to do with the console itself.
been having a similar problem with my ps3...
when i shut it down, it shuts all the way down...no lights
have to press the power switch twice to get it back on..
been happening since i got gt5...
